The book starts out by dropping you right in the middle of the action and you just tumble headlong from there I don t think that having read the other three books will help there is a long page of exposition and while it does make sense that two brothers would be catching each other up on what each had been doing it still felt somehow forcedMaximillien why such a weird apparently French spelling Because his father was treasonous The timing seems off to name him after Robespierre and if that was the case why not spell it the same is the youngest son of the Redgraves While his family has been at home fighting a mysterious Society which is trying to help Napoleon defeat the British he has been working for the Crown overseas When he thought that Zoe had betrayed him and four other agents he was devastated and started playing just a little too fast and loose for his family s likingZoe had a good reason for writing the letter that claimed she was guilty of the crimes Max believed of her And she spent many months in a French prison for just that reason But she got out and started working for Tallyrand according to Wikipedia he was a crafty and cynical diplomat for many of the regimes in France including Napoleon s though he really strove to provide peace in his country than to further any cause Now she s on Max s ancestral estate and they are working together to defeat the last of the SocietyI thought the first book in the series was the best This one brought a close to the four books but not with as much flair as they began I m surprised to find that the copyright for this book was 2014 since it really reminds me of Mallery s earlier books than her latest effortsview spoilerNormally I like reading about two people who are close to or already in love but I just couldn t connect with Max and Zoe They thought they were in love then Max all to easily believed she betrayed him and then magically believed she hadn t It seemed so fast that all of this story happened within the first 20 or so pages of the storyAnd for all of the action at the beginning the end was strangely flat You start out with a fight scene and end with the enemy illing themselves so the heroes had nothing to do hide spoiler Well it is over it was a great ride and surprising ending except Anton was revealed from the beginning Of the four the second was best Of the individual Trixie was the bond We still were left with an imprecise reason for the Cooper s defection Angus dying was sad as he had narrative that should have been revealed as he was essential through husband and sonthe wrap up still did not explain how the plot was defeated as there were so many bonapartists loose in England Kasey Michaels did a great job and her interlacing of the the Captain and Romney Marsh was a very good plot line Have not finished all of that series yet but Michaels certainly has an excellent track record for he prolific output Another very good story although there was a point where I almost almost stopped reading I don t like heroesheroines who do stupid things and after all Zoe and Max had been through and talked through she still decided to go after a bad guy without telling him The stress of her stupidity almost slammed the door for me I got over it but couldn t give five stars because of it This has been a splendid series all the characters have been great I think Valentine book 3 wins as my favorite hero only by a hair because of his sense of humorMax and Zoe have a history They were passionate lovers and spies for the Crown Then he was led to believe she had betrayed them and several of their comrades lost their lives because of it So first she had to win back his trust I m happy to say it didn t take a hundred pages drawn out to do this so the story got going at a good clip almost immediately The romance is about what is love exactly They each discount the passion as lust but not love and feel they love each other but want to be sure it s love and not something else While doing that thinking they are solving the mystery of the Society and trying to identify who is THE WOMAN who has taken over There s no final battle or even any cleverness involved in the end But the identity of THE WOMAN is interestingAfter I finished the first three I needed to wait until the next day to buy the fourth book I picked up another to read before bed but couldn t let go of this story and bought the e book so I could start on it right away Glad I did A good agent doesn t need gadgets The only gadgets I ve ever needed are a sharp eye sensitive hearing and a whole bunch of bigger brains Spoilers ahead I love a good series as much as the next person In fact most of the books I read are part of a series I m so accustomed to reading a story from the series that I often think I see reoccurring characters in books that aren t part of a series That s maddening Series come with a variety of plot.

Lines We have the siblings orphans spies brotherhood spinsters mistresses friends vampires werewolves shapeshifters etc Sometimes these books are just connected by the relationship between these people and sometimes there is a continuing thread through all of the stories Even though I love connecting stories I have to admit I have a short memory and I don t always remember who did what to whom when or where I find it even harder to remember events when there is a continuing storyline especially if that storyline doesn t grab me in the very first bookIn the case of the Redgrave series I was underwhelmed from the very beginning The only book in this series I liked was What a Lady Needs the rest were just a lackluster convoluted telling of some sort of mystery involving a hellfire club and the wearing of the rose lapel pin This is the series with the Redgrave family who are sort of in hiding but not really and at the same time they are trying to save the country and get to the bottom of who is in the hellfire clubThis story revolves around Max Redgrave He s the brother who is are you readya spy Yes he s a spy Because he is a spy he wears blue tinted glasses why I don t now but they make him look dangerous Seriously blue tinted glasses make men look dangerous Yep especially since he wears them half way down his nose so he s looking over them Maybe he s channeling Gary Oldman from Dracula who La libertad primera y ltima (CLAVE) knows By the way we never do find out why he s wearing those glasses but then there s a lot in this book we never get to find out the why of For all of you readers who areeeping track of spies in romance books this is one of the inept spies Of course there could be a reason for his ineptness he has a partner ZoeAt the beginning of the book he hatesssss Zoe because she betrayed him to the French and lots and lots of good inept spies were Psicohigiene killed because of her so he hatesssss her But wait He s wrong she didn t betray him she lied to save him from the e v i l Anton who is in league with the rose lapel pin people Because Max discovers he was wrong about Zoe there is no revenge plot in this book it falls by the way side and they can hop into bed almost right away However since there isn t any sexual tension created in this story you may miss the first hippidy hoppidy moment Then Max s brain becomes lust logged and he turns into an even inept spy That doesn t stop he and Zoe from trying to track down the grand pooh ba of the hellfire club As it turns out the grand pooh ba is a woman gasp Who can it be And who is her sideick You now the oh so dumb guy with the oh so handsome face Don t forget to look at the family portraitsthere are clues there and roses Where oh where is the mysterious book that tells all the secrets of the club And what is Anton s connection to all of this Do we careDo not fear iddoes because alllll of the Redgraves are back to solve these mysteries plus some pirates with a captain who I think I m supposed to recognize from some other book but I don t He is called The Black Ghost so he must be one of the Beckets from the Romney Marsh series which I now I read and which I don t remember So we don t have enough characters with the gazillion Redgraves oh no we have to bring in the Becket s too Let s not forget the Cooper family who are really bad people maybe Or just maybe they have been led astray my the she wolf leader of the hellfire society the ones with the rose lapel pinsSo we have all of these people conspirators and spies and they are running all over the place through secret tunnels that aren t so secret because the doors to the tunnels are left open Kate Redgrave pretends to be Zoe in an attempt to have Anton follow her Kate And I guess that works because soon Zoe and Max are in bed togetherbut wait Anton shows up so Zoe hides under the bed No one will ever think to look under the bed and Max is some place in the room on top of the canopy or something Zoe can watch Anton s boots as he moves around the roombut wait another pair of boots it s the Becket captain from Romney Marsh He s come to save the day Thank goodness now they can find the leader of the hellfire societyOff Zoe and Max go discreetly stealthy like creeping through the dark and what do they find The mysterious handsome man dead And the female leader Well she s dead too So I guess Max and Zoe don t have anything to do but twiddle their thumbs and all that creeping and crawling was fornothing We do get to find out who the woman was in the very end and that iddoes was a surprise However the whole book was one convoluted path to nothing over and over again I now you ve heard this before if the couple in the story had only talked to each other Why I ve even said that myself Well my fellow whiners some times you get what you wish for and wish you hadn t This story is an example of what happens when the main romantic couple talk to each other in the fi.
